Incident ID Settings

You can generate Incident IDs automatically. Alternatively, you can enter Incident IDs manually in the same manner as you enter any other incident property. If an Incident ID is generated automatically, you can overwrite it manually. Incident IDs will be incremented each time you enter a new incident.

Incident IDs can include four components:

  1. Prefix – any symbols (optional)
  2. Number – from 4 to 16 digits (optional)
  3. Suffix – any symbols (optional)
  4. Date – date format can be defined (optional)

The Incident ID may be not unique if you manually overwrite automatically generated IDs. To enable automatic generation of Incident ID and define the format of Incident ID:

  1. Click the Schedule tab. In the Settings group, click Options.
  2. Click the Incident tab.
  3. Click on Incident ID Format to define rules for Incident ID automatic generation; Incident ID Format dialog box opens.
  4. Define the Incident ID prefix and suffix.
  5. Define the number of digits for Incident ID generation.
  6. Enable / disable dates as part of the Incident ID format and define the date format and position.
  7. Define starting number for Incident ID.
